092408summerstreet.jpgBike-friendly city Transportation Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan told reporters last night that August's street closures in Manhattan will be back next year. The Summer Streets program, which prohibited traffic on a 7-mile stretch from the Brooklyn Bridge to Central Park on three consecutive Saturdays, was "clearly a hit on Park Ave," Sadik-Khan tells the Daily News. She also says it's "highly likely" Summer Streets will be extended next summer to the other boroughs. While some retailers complained that they lost business from customers who couldn't drive to their locations, cyclists and pedestrians were mostly enthusiastic about the car-free oasis, relishing the chance to play music, dance, and practice yoga in the middle of the street.
